Nestlé Academy has built its reputation as a continual innovator over a history of more than a century and a half. So for an ambitious Finance Apprentice, it really is the best of both worlds. A safe, secure business with which to build a successful career but, also, the kind of employer that encourages you to try new ways of doing things.
That’s why we’re now looking for people who love exploring ideas. Does that sound like you? For example, have you been wondering whether to go to university or start a career instead? That bold, impressive ability to look critically at your choices is just what we want to see from the next generation of Nestlé innovators.
What can you expect?
If you excel at Mathematics, a career in Finance with the world’s biggest confectionery brand will develop and reward your skills to the levels they deserve. Over two years, you’ll complete four different certificate papers, giving you serious breadth of industry specific skills. You’ll get to develop your career as quickly as you do your knowledge, as well as gaining a Level 4 Professional Accounting/Tax Technician Apprenticeship.
Join us and you’ll focus on:
- Reporting – preparing and managing accurate accounts and performance data as well as analysing, interpreting and communicating your insights
- Customer Support – building and maintaining effective working relationships with managers and key contacts, as you develop an understanding of the functions within which they operate and coach them in systems and information interpretation
- Budget Planning – helping management to prepare, process and reconcile the annual standard cost budget
- Lean – reviewing and streamlining our processes to ensure they’re as efficient as possible and evaluating potential business savings
Who are we looking for?
Confident with numbers and excited by mathematical problem solving, you should also have a strong commercial focus. This will be combined with the ability to turn complex numerical data into reports that are easily digestible to stakeholders who don’t work in Finance. A strong customer service grounding in addition to your numerical skills will be highly beneficial.
There’s never been a better opportunity to develop your finance career. Applicants who hold undergraduate Finance degrees are, unfortunately, ineligible to apply. We will be looking for GCSEs (actual or predicted) at grades 9 – 4 (or A*- C if received in 2017 or previous).
